Transient Flow Field Temperature Profile Measurement Using Rotational Raman Spectroscopy

  • J. R. Smith


The application of a pulsed laser and low-light-level television system for obtaining the frequency and spatial distribution of pure rotational Raman scattering from a transient gas flow is presented. The system has a temporal resolution of less than one millisecond and spatial resolution better than 0.1 millimeters. Examples of temperature determinations of hydrogen and deuterium are given. Plans are to use the system to take temperature profiles across a transient gas jet.
